Yes, I am gaslighting you. Today most everyone walked right past the coffee to its former perch and then looked up at me as if I had kicked their kitten. "Where's the coffee ?" The coffee now resides right in front of the door for your convenience and confusion. You haven't even begun to notice the other psychological changes I am making in your daily HypnoRoutine... or have you? The brownie's cinnamon content goes down one (1) teaspoon per batch, the lights are increased two (2) lumens every Thursday, the table's height changes daily with the use of three (3) centimeter shims I put under the legs, and the building itself moves to the east one (1) inch every week. Haven't you noticed? You thought you were just going crazy? The answer to both is, "yes".

Tomorrow is the last day for filing your intent to run for city council. Pick up the forms at town hall, or at HypnoCoffee. Let's not wait another two (2) years before we engage in our collective home. Free drinks for candidates!

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse. It involves an increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information from, and/or providing false information to the subject, having the gradual effect of making the victim anxious, confused, and less able to trust his or her own memory and perception. A variation of gaslighting, used as a form of harassment, is to subtly alter aspects of a victim's environment, thereby upsetting his or her peace of mind, sense of security, etc.
